What could this be Every time I try to turn the TV on, all I see is the red timer light blinking ten times, then it stop blinking, without showing any picture at all, I removed the video card, and the blinking on the timer light stop stoped completely, so just installed back the video card, and it went back to the timer light blinking

By video card do you mean a Cablecard? I've heard of problems with Cablecards causing problems with the host television. Contact your cable provider about their card. Check to see if the TV works with other inputs without the cable card installed.

    You have a problem with power supply, or a short inside tv. the tv switching off by itself it is because of a safety switch preventing the tv from receiving eventual further damage.
    Probably changing the power unit inside the tv may fix the problem. It should be tested and eventually replaced.
    Unless you are an expert DIYer you should call a service center in your area and have the tv repaired.

Tv turns itself off


do the self test the set has.

when green light (power) comes on and then goes off, press and hold BOTH the Menu and Input buttons for at least 5 seconds and release both buttons on the front of the set.

The power light will display a error code: for example 2 blinks, a pause and 2 blinks (this is the most common one) and it will repeat the code about 5 times.

To get it to repeat it you have to unplug set, plug it back in and turn it one and when it fails repeat the check.

Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what may be wrong. I hope it is 2,2 as it is the least difficult to resolve.

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

Tv turns off


Its the lamp that needs replacing. It will run for a couple of seconds and then it would dim or turn off.

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
